En bref. Le studio finlandais PlayRaven a mis en ligne il y a quelques jours un sympathique et original jeu de stratégie pour iPad. Intitulé Spymaster, il s’agit ici de gérer durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale un réseau d’espions luttant contre le troisième Reich, et donc contre la Gestapo. Le jeu semble très soigné tant graphiquement qu’en ce qui concerne son gameplay. Étant gratuit il connait d’ores et déjà un vif succès, tout au moins en terme de nombre de téléchargement (au moins 100 000, semble-t-il).
